I’m one of those people who has to watch the whole time if I get blood drawn or stitches done or anything else. They say to cough before I get a shot or something and I say yeah right, just stick me! I asked the doctor if we couldn’t just lower or get rid of that curtain at the birth, and they said something about germs getting in. This doesn’t make sense to me. It seems to me that any germs I could breathe on that cut would already be there in my body. But I got a look at the operating room when we did our tour and they have a big mirror they said they would set up so I could watch that way.
I saw a live triplet birth on the Health Network last night. They filmed it over the doctor’s shoulder, so you can see everything. Plus, they kept filming after the babies were out of the room. I don’t know what exactly they were doing to that poor woman’s stomach, but I don’t think she really wanted to see it!
